The team

Marina Lai, Coordinator

Marina has 30 years of experience as a primary teacher and teacher-trainer. She is currently working as a coordinator in a reputed school in Kolkata. Throughout her career she has been involved in social and educational development programs for the underprivileged children of the city. We are very thankful to Marina for leading the centre on a voluntary basis.

Nokoma Rao, Supervisor

Nokoma lives near the centre and knows all our students. She opens and closes the premises and supervises the children during lessons. She also assists the teachers with their educational material, cleans the property and provides general assistance as needed.

Our Teachers

All our teachers are qualified with many years of teaching experience and all speak English, Hindi and Bengali. The Centre is open from 3:30pm to 6:30pm, Monday to Friday.  Each teacher receives a salary, except for our Hindi Teacher, who insists on teaching twice a week free of charge to help the children with their Hindi homework.
